Re: Cathy Atwood's inquiry about powder post beetles

Powder post beetles are indeed a museum pest of serious order: try "Pest
Control in Museums", the classic by Linda Zycherman, available from the
American Association of Museums mail order bookstore.

You might also wish to contact

    Thomas A. Parker
    Pest Control Services, Inc
    44 West Essex Ave

who is most knowledgeable about survival and infestation rates; however,
as he does pest control for a living, he may not be able to provide a
great deal of information for free.

You can also contact 

    Alan Postlethwaite
    Conservation Analytical Laboratory
    Museum Support Center
    Smithsonian Institution
    Washington D.C. 20560

who is always most helpful on matters of pest control.
